Bett (or as it was formerly known as the British Educational Training and Technology Show) is a leader in the field of EdTech that has been going on strong since its founding in 1985. In its first decades, the show switched several exhibition venues until it settled on ExCeL London in 2013. The trade fair now is held in January every single year and serves as the opener for the educational technology industry, being the first platform to signal boost industry news and unveil cutting-edge innovations. Bett is all about innovations and the product portfolio includes computer training, distance learning, educational software, teaching aids, learning spaces, AV and projection, screens, 3D printers, furniture, monitors, VLE, AI, e-books and the list goes on.

Additional Value of Attending
Innovation receives ample attention during Bett. Startups are well loved and serviced by the Bett Futures showcase dedicated to the “Best in Class” EdTech startups. Everyone is welcome to attend and the feature is sponsored by AWS, BESA, EEA, GOOGLE CLOUD & MINDCET. The area is a source of innovation and inspiration, which draws a lot of interest from visitors because of the potential for new technology to shake up the education sector.
The area is divided into plug-and-play exhibition pods as well as a seminar theatre, where you can sit through shark tank sessions, edtech trends and networking events. Over the years, Bett Futures has proven its worth as a launch pad for new companies to get their footing and meet educators, investors and school leaders alike.
Hard work always pays off and organisers certainly want to reward the true innovations out there through the Bett Awards. Do you think you have a product or service that’s going to change the education sector? Then this is where you should enter and prove your worth. The Awards are held in association with Besa. Winners go off to do remarkable things. Let’s look at the companies that have won – Learning Ladders, Mathigon, Robotical, White Rose Maths, Mussila Music School and Mable Therapy.
A separate sub-event, which runs alongside Bett, is Ahead by Bett. The event carves out space for higher education and its specific sets of challenges that affect academia. It’s a place for everyone involved in the education process to exchange information, knowledge and contact information. The three groups of professionals that attend Ahead by Bett include senior leadership, technology leads and faculty leads. Some of the topics discussed here include identifying solutions to improve learning outcomes, ensuring students are engaged, self-directed learners and managing increased workload in blended learning structures.
